New Conference to begin in 2015-16
September 24, 2013 – Nine schools from six adjoining counties in Northern Indiana have announced their intentions to form a new athletic conference beginning with the 2015-16 school year. The Hoosier North Athletic Conference (HNAC) will include Caston, Culver, Knox, LaVille, North Judson-San Pierre, Pioneer, Triton, West Central, & Winamac. The decision to start conference play in 2015-16 will give member schools adequate time to align the schedules for each sport.
Several factors were involved in the decision to form a new athletic conference including travel distance, competitive balance, existing rivalries, and overall athletic & academic philosophy. The decision to form the HNAC was a very thorough process that involved numerous meetings between the member schools with support from each school corporation.
